In Chicago, my friend lived across the street from an elementary school with the coolest fence and doors.
Remember this quilt? The little guy who I made it for was born two weeks before my visit so we drove up to Madison from Chicago and got to see him.
Finally, I went to the Minnesota State Fair, which I love in all of its ridiculous glory. You can get amazing food (almost all fried and/or on a stick), see animals, play games at the Midway and see girls having their likeness carved out of butter. I mean really, what's not to love?!
Here are some highlights. I took pictures from the quilt show, but honestly, I was a little let down since most everything was really traditional and fairly conservative in style.
I really liked how from a distance this looks like waves and then upclose, you can see there aren't any curves at all!
After buying a bucket full of cookies, we headed straight for the milk booth where you can drink an unlimited amount of white or chocolate milk for $1!
